Leaning Tree Adventures Sponsors Mud Adventure Race
In an arena dominated by national companies, Leaning Tree Adventures is staging its first mud adventure race, Miles of Mud. Operating at Rocky Hill Ranch in Smithville, Texas, the three-year- old-company is expanding beyond mountain bicycle races to build on the interest of runners whose goals seem to be getting wet and muddy. Leaning Tree has already hosted several national races of this sort at the ranch, but is coming up with a bigger and better course for local enthusiasts, that is to say more obstacles and more mud.
The June 1st Miles of Mud, the first of the company’s semi-annual races, will feature 35 or more obstacles and incorporate elements developed for its race training program. Each race in the series will feature 100% comprehensive registration fees, an unusual feature of such races. Proceeds will benefit various charities or non-profit groups, including Wounded Explosive Ordinance Disposal Warrior Foundation (WEODWF) through the Texas Patriot Challenge scheduled for 2014. Other beneficiaries will be Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, Freedom Is Not Free, and Austin International Poetry Festival.
A schedule of activities sponsored or hosted by Leaning Tree Adventures can be found on the company’s website: www.rockyhillranch.com. For information about Miles of Mud, contact Greg Maxwell through the races site at www.milesofmud.com.
